What is it?

KTS is associated with a port wine stain covering the arms or legs, lymphatic anomalies that cause swelling of the affected arm or leg, incorrectly formed veins in the affected arm or leg.
Typical underlying malformations that occur with KTS include port wine stains, lymphatic malformations, and venous malformations.
Bone involvement might occur – causing unusually large growth of the affected arm or leg. This syndrome is present at birth.
